Daniel Day-Lewis has shocked Hollywood by announcing he is quitting acting.

Considered the greatest actor of his generation, the 60 year old was the first person to win three Best Actor Oscars.

A spokeswoman for the star told Variety magazine it was "a private decision".

His final film will be The Phantom Thread, which is due for release in December.

The English-born actor holds an Irish passport and divides his time between homes in New York and Wicklow.
